"Safe, reliable, a heck of a lot of fun"4.0 starson by jbpittman57
Pros: The Acura offered better performance, safety, reliability, and comfort at any price... and the price wasn't so bad compared to the competition.
Cons: I wish the gas milage was better and the navigation system was upgraded.
Summary: I have about 38000 miles on my 2008. I shopped around extensively, looking at the BMW, Lexus, Land Rover, and Infinity. It handles like a sports sedan, always feeling planted and secure no matter the road conditions. The safety ratings bear this out. I travel quite a lot and it never leaves me tired at the end of the day. The seats and interior layout fit me better than any other car I have owned. I have heard complaints about turbo lag, but if you put the transmission in sport mode, throttle response is neck snapping. Maybe I just got a good one but my 0-60 times are much better than what I read about in road tests, but I use the paddle shifters in sport mode. What most don't tell you about are the 0-80 times! Now that is a rush. Yes, it will suck down the premium if you drive it this way, but if I just put it in drive and go easy on the turbo boost (there is a handy gauge to let you know) I get about 24 mpg on the interstate. The sound system is beautiful, navigation is just okay. Overall it is the perfect drive for me. I am a middle aged commercial photographer. It is fun to drive, hauls my gear, and cleans up to be a very nice luxury SUV.
Thanks for your submission!
